93 Percent Of Straight Men In This Study Said They've Cuddled With Another Guy

Yes, straight men sleep together.
That’s according to a new study out of Britain on the changing social habits of heterosexual males. Published in the journal of Men and Masculinities in March, the study revealed that 98 percent of the study’s participants -- all white, college-age male athletes -- have shared a bed with another guy. In addition, 93 percent also reported having spooned or cuddled with another man.

James Franco recently took a "bed selfie" with friend Keegan Allen and posted it to Instagram.

Study co-author and sociologist Mark McCormack, of Durham University, says the study’s results exemplify changing conceptions of masculinity in contemporary culture. As homophobia decreases, McCormack says, straight men are acting “much softer” than those from older generations -- something he and Eric Anderson, of the University of Winchester, set out to examine.

Remember our prepubescence when sharing a bed with our best mate during a sleepover, as well as his company generally, was an innocent pleasure completely devoid of complication?

Remember when the two of us went everywhere together, shared recess at school together, visited each others houses at every opportunity, and were seen as a pair far more often than alone?

Little did we realize then that we were sharing one of life's truly great gifts.
